    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zipcar (Boston, MA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Personality Screening, then On-Site. Seems that there wasn't a person on-site to assess the actually language in the job recommendation. This made for a tiresome whiteboard-esque problem on somebody else's laptop and IDE in a language they said they don't code in very much. I was asked to switch to pseudo-code when we were running low on time. It would have been nice to have had that option at the beginning of the problem. Pairing with them seemed like a nightmare, while they nitpicked object declarations as I was writing them; and their input sent me on a few false-starts. Other in-person interviews seemed to go well, but the damage was done there.
